Monsieur Pourquoi – Décadence EP

Given everything that is and will be going on in your day to day life, a spot of luxurious self-indulgence every now and then wouldn’t hurt. That said, I’m not sure it’s the same kind of decadence the Research & Development Records crew had in mind when they put together their latest EP, courtesy of Monsieur Pourquoui.…

Dulcet – The End EP

Via the steadily growing catalogue, we’ve gotten a nice glimpse at the Research & Development modus operandi. As you may know, the usual constraints of genre or style vanish in the face of R&D’s ultimate goal, which is to promote quality music. You needn’t search for proof too long, as Dulcet‘s label debut will provide all the evidence…

John Dopping – Words In Colour Rephrased Volume 1

An exercise in musical story rebuilding is upon us, as Research & Development Records prepares to unleash Volume 1 of Words In Colour Rephrased. This first foray into rephrasing has Alan Ruddick, Chris Voro and DeCode trying their hand at the rather difficult assignment. But first, what is this Words In Colour I speak of? For those not familiar, that is the title of John…

Daniel Lesden – Surreal EP

By his own admission, Daniel Lesden is not one to stick to the particular boundaries of a genre, and his latest double part single on JOOF Recordings serves as sufficient proof for anyone who seeks it. You’ll have to read on if you wish to find out more details. 🙂 Part 1  The EP kicks off with what can…

DeCode – Sky Chaser EP

With 2015 nearing its end, the previously frantic activity from earlier in the year winds down, a fact which is visible everywhere, including at Research & Development Records. However, before they go and enjoy the New Year’s celebrations, there’s one more thing they’d like to bring to your attention. That one thing is DeCode‘s second appearance on the imprint,…

Sean Tyas – Degeneration (Vol. 2)

Sean Tyas is a name that needs no introduction, due to his distinctive sound and versatility, which has gotten him a loyal global fan base. This aforementioned versatility is showcased beautifully in the second of his trio of Degeneration EPs, released in anticipation of his album due in February of next year. Let’s see what’s inside Volume 2.…

[RWD] The Geezer – Acidextrous

The ReWind series exists as merely an aid in the discovery (or rather, rediscovery) of the unintentionally forgotten, or the often overlooked tracks of yesteryear.  Just like a couple of weeks back, UK’s Geezer is once more the one providing the ReWind soundtrack. Released in 2000 at Smitten, his track Acidextrous does exactly what it says on the tin :…

[RWD] Berio 303 & The Geezer – Acid Keul

The ReWind series exists as merely an aid in the discovery (or rather, rediscovery) of the unintentionally forgotten, or the often overlooked tracks of yesteryear. If you looked at the last 4 ReWind posts and thought to yourself “Where’s the acid gone?”, rejoice, for the answer is inbound. I’ve said time and time again that I’m a…

[RWD] Aaron Liberator & The Geezer – Beer On The Dancefloor

The ReWind series exists as merely an aid in the discovery (or rather, rediscovery) of the unintentionally forgotten, or the often overlooked tracks of yesteryear.  The track recommendation from lucky week number 13 of the series is, as some of you might have noticed, a little bit late. The explanation is very simple : it’s my birthday…

[RWD] Chris Liberator & Geezer – Small Sleek Silver Box

The ReWind series exists as merely an aid in the discovery (or rather, rediscovery) of the unintentionally forgotten, or the often overlooked tracks of yesteryear. Since it’s Friday, get ready for yet another installment of our look back series, ReWind. Picking up from where we left off last week, some more acid techno for your speakers. In the spotlight…

[RWD] Lochi – London Acid City

The ReWind series exists as merely an aid in the discovery (or rather, rediscovery) of the unintentionally forgotten, or the often overlooked tracks of yesteryear.  This week, since it’s quite cold outside, I figured a trip to the rave aisle would be just the thing. 😀 The high BPM, 303 madness and sea of strobe…
